David Cornelius DVDTalk.com The charm is missing, the conflict is bland, and the sluggish story feels like a chore to get through. Rated: 2/5 Nov 13, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member The best movie song ever sung: You'll Never Know! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Colorful but empty Fox musical was Alice Faye's final starring role in a musical for the studio; the song "You'll Never Know" won the Oscar. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Delightful musical with a great cast. Alive Faye is terrific as always, and John Payne as handsome as ever. Great score, colorful production with good costumes, cinematography and art direction. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Delightful musical with a great cast. Alive Faye is terrific as always, and John Payne as handsome as ever. Great score, colorful production with good costumes, cinematography and art direction. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Charming, colorful musical. Alice sings beautifully and looks like a million. John Payne is appealing even if his character is a cad. Jack Oakie offers good support and June Havoc is a bundle of energy, probably her best role, offering a glimpse of what Baby/Dainty June was really like in Gypsy. All that and the costumes are knockouts! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
